We aim for mid- to late-January. I was bad last year, though. Abby popped the week I was planning to take it down, so it stayed up until March. :

Oh my Gosh. The 26th is way waaaaaay too early over here. In our culture it would be unheard of to take down the tree and decorations on St. Stephen's day.
Generally, most people, including ourselves wait until the 6th as it is considered bad luck to take them down before the end of Christmas (the Epiphany). Altho, some do take them down on the second of Jan.
Bear in mind tho' that many many households don't put up their tree until a week or two before Christmas eve.
Personally tho', I like having the lights and decorations up for the full three weeks.
